Reigning FIBA Africa Zone Five champions Kenya Ports Authority are safely in Dar-es-salaam ready for the defence of their title, coach Anthony Ojukwu disclosed.

The porters' road trip through Tanga from Mombasa took over 10 hours and the team had their first two sessions today.

"We are just from training, a light one to shake off the fatigue and loosening out," He said.

The Kenya champions will be having two sessions a day—both morning and afternoon. "The morale in the camp is high with no injuries to worry about at all," he noted. 

"We will continue with our preparations tomorrow as I try to polish everything in terms of our tactics and technical aspects of the game."

The team's target, he maintained, is to get into the medal bracket and they want to approach one match at a time.

KPA battled compatriots Equity Bank Hawks in last year's finals, winning the gold medal game with ease.

The winners will book their ticket to the finals of the FIBA Africa Cup for Women's Championship.
